I am researching the Palmers of East Feliciana Parish in Louisiana. I have located the main people in my family tree(Nicholas Palmer, Calvin S.Palmer, Nehemiah Parsons Palmer, Archibald D. Palmer, John E. Palmer) but I am confused about all the Archibalds,Marys, Smith family, Ryder famliy, and Head family as they connect to the Palmer family. If anyone can help clear up this confusion, I would greatly appreciate it. Even if you could tell me where to look for this information. I have used the census information, Mary Sagely's books, cemetery books etc.
I am also looking for information on Joseph Carpenter (1876) who is from East Feliciana Parish in Louisiana. His wife was Kathereen NOrwood (1868). They had three children-Ethel Lee Carpenter, Joe Carpenter, and Bessie Carpenter. Thanks for any help with either of these families.
